Gear Stats
You'll want to focus on attack rating, as you don't need heal rating or health at this point, assuming you're doing normal or elite dungeons. As for glyphs, you should focus on hit rating and penetration rating only.

DESCRIPTION

This build is designed for Elite dungeons, and possibly Normal dungeons if you have the AP. The Build is cheap, versatile and can also pull decent dps while you are working your way through the Elite dungeons.

Twist the Knife

When you can afford the passive called Twist the Knife, you can replace Brawler.

Warning – Go for the Throat
Go for the Throat applies an impair effect on the target. Be careful when doing this in dungeons, as every boss in Elite and Nightmare dungeons become immune after 3 impairs or hinders, and sometims the tank will need to impair to interrupt special casts. If you are asked to not use this ability, then don’t.

HOW IT WORKS

The rotation is fairly simple and varies depending on whether Go for the Throat is off cooldown or not. It’s used as a filler to advance Elemental Force and add some extra damage.

When Go for the Throat is available
Grass Cutter – x5
Go for the Throat – x1
Wild at Heart – x1
Dancing Blade – x1

When Go for the Throat is on cooldown
Grass Cutter – x6
Wild at Heart – x1
Dancing Blade – x1
